For the conference, we are seeking both individual scholarly papers as well as group panels of interactive discussion or interrelated papers that engage this theme in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:
The relationship between politics and religion and the way in which religion and the state have shaped one another at various historical moments
The role of technological advances and innovations in transforming religious landscapes
Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism and its interactions with colonialism, conquest, and imperialism
As in past years, we welcome any papers or projects that engage your particular interest broadly related to the Unitarian Universalist movement and tradition.
We also welcome alternatives to these standard formats – for example: presentations such as music or art, or other creative work.
Please use the below form to submit your proposal. Each proposal should include an abstract of 300-500 words. Notification of whether or not a proposal has been accepted will be given by June 15, 2017. Upon acceptance, participants will receive information on uploading their abstract and information to the UU Collegium website.
